Traditionally, a pergola is an archway that utilizes plants or other materials to create a shaded framework used in walkways or parks. Think of it like an outdoor structure that is covered in plants to give you shade. Pergolas have been used throughout history and while not a common term, we see them at parks, hotels, backyards, and other walkways.
Today, pergolas are created using a variety of materials including aluminum and fiberglass for the frame. Also, specialty fabrics like polyvinyl composites and acrylics can be used in place of plants to create the framework and shade desired.
Also, pergolas are like backyard playhouses for adults. You can create a lounge area by putting in furniture and other leisure items. You can create a little getaway in your own backyard or for guests where you can lounge and have a drink on a beautiful spring day.
